Adobe Photoshop is an amazing raster based software. Due to powerful feature, it is one of the best graphic tools in the world. Photoshop is very useful for print media & web designer, digital photographers, multimedia, image editing and many more.

It can edit and compose raster based images using multiple layers and supports layers masks, alpha compositing and multi-color models including RGB, CMYK, Lab color space, spot color, powerful filters, special effects and duotone. Photoshop has vast support for graphic file formats but also uses its own PSD and PSB file formats/extensions which support all the aforementioned features.

Moreover, it has limited abilities to edit or render text, vector based graphics (especially through clipping path), 3D graphics, 3D effects and video. Photoshop’s feature set can be expanded by Photoshop plug-ins library (3rd party plug-ins), programs developed and distributed independently of Photoshop that can run inside it and offer new or enhanced with incredible features.
